About the property

2 stylish bedroom apartment near the Salute Church in Dorsoduro area

On the picturesque canalside known as ‘Fondamenta Soranzo’, where gondola oars and ‘forcolas’ are still crafted by hand, and close to the one-time home of well known American poet Ezra Pound, sits Ca’ Della Fornace - a cosy and very comfortable two bedroom apartment on the third floor with views onto the romantic ‘Rio Delle Fornace’ canal and a part of the awe-inspiring ‘cupola’ of the Church of Santa Maria Della Salute, one of the most cherished icons of the city.

Bright, peaceful and very charmingly decorated with a distinct aura of class and sophistication plus a mere stone’s throw from the artistic delights of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the Punta Della Dogana Center of Contemporary Art, Ca’ Della Fornace comprises an elegant living/dining area (featuring amidst its nicely-matched furnishings a portrait of Ezra Pound and another of Peggy herself), a fully fitted kitchen/breakfast area, two double bedrooms, a small room with a single sofa/bed (more suitable for a child) and a bathroom with shower.

The air conditioning in the master bedroom and in the bed room with twin beds allow for comfortable relaxation during the warmer months, while the ability to keep in touch and plan your days' activities via the apartment's wireless internet connection proves a real plus.

Well-designed and perfectly placed for exploring Dorsoduro, the apartment is also just around the corner from the ‘Traghetto’ at Calle Lanza which, during operating hours, ferries passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal to ‘Campo Del Traghetto’ (next to the Gritti Palace Hotel) allowing you to discover the many sights and sounds of the district of San Marco and beyond.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Impressed at how easy the online booking process was, and how quickly we were contacted by reception upon landing in Venice so that we would be sure to have our taxi drop us off at the nearest spot on the canal near our door. Both our reception and check out receptionists were friendly and helpful, and the Views on Venice office was also very quick to help us book a taxi to pick us up near the Accademia Bridge to get back to the airport. The apartment was exactly as pictured and was very clean and quiet. Kitchen is ample and was nicely stocked with coffee and spices The views onto the small canal and Salute church were lovely. The heat worked well when we needed it during our first couple of days there. Overall, a great stay and we will definitely recommend Views On Venice to friends and will use them again to find a beautiful apartment rental in Venice.

Charm, elegance and comfort!

  • 5 of 5

This charming apartment was perfectly located along a picturesque canal in artsy Dorsoduro. Very comfortable and well appointed (and well air conditioned in what was a killer heat wave) there was plenty of room for my two children (an 8 year old and a toddler), my parents and my husband and I. The views were a joy to wake up to each morning and the apartment's location made for a beautiful respite from the the summer tourist crowds.

The hosts were beyond accommodating, confirming our arrival and transport a few days before, meeting us at the apartment for check in, securing elegant water taxi transport to and from the apartment and promptly responding to any other questions we had during our stay.

We would definitely stay here again. The apartment, hosts and Venice surpassed our expectations.

Nice property, quiet neighborhood

We enjoyed our stay. The apartment is well laid out and comfortable for our family of five. It is on a small canal off the Grand Canal and close to Guggenheim Museum. I would stay here again.

Exactly what we were hoping for !

Venice - Ca' Della Fornace apartment

A great place to stay and an absolute perfect location for a Venice vacation. We stayed a week in June 2016 (2 adults and our 9-year-old son.)

We had great communications with the team at Views of Venice from the start. All of our questions during the process of booking were answered thoroughly and promptly. We had a personal and warm welcome upon arrival.

It took very little time to feel at home in the apartment. We loved the third floor canal views and the domes of Salute from the twin bedroom and living room. The roof tops and tree views in back from the master bedroom was also very nice. We did not mind the stairs. The kitchen was small but well provisioned and the bathroom clean and modern.

We were minutes away from the vaporetto and traghetto stops. It was magical every day to step out of our apartment just because of the great location. There are artist studios and galleries, a wood carver’s shop who works on the specialized gondola oars and holders, a grocery store, cafes and bars and restaurants that are so easy to walk to. The apartment location is very quiet at night. We fell in love with Dorsoduro district; it feels very Venetian and not overtaken by tourists and tourist locals.

It is a perfect place to stay and start to enjoy Venice. We were never more than 20 min from major attractions either by walking or taking vaporettos.

In short the listing description is 100% correct and we were 200% satisfied with the apartment, its location, and with the Views Of Venice rental company.

We are dying to go back and would stay without any hesitation in the Ca' Della Fornace apartment! And we have highly recommend it to our friends too!

The property was very well described. Location was excellent, we could see the domes of Santa Maria della Salute from the living room and a lovely canal. In fact, those were the reasons why we chose the property. It was clean and well maintained. The staff of Views on Venice provided a very good customer service and helped us with all our requests. I would definitely recommend this property to everybody.
